Ex-Hollywood manager/agent Pat Dollard has posted a trailer from his Iraqi war documentary Young Americans at Pat Dollard.com. How to describe the clip? Well, it ain’t subtle. The central thesis pits the so-called back-home innocents against the cynical soldiers in the field, as best summed up this song lyric excerpt: “I piss on my generation. All I see is little MTV babies playing their little MTV games. That ain’t the real f****** world.” Imagine if Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers was a doc set in Iraq, and you get the idea (though I very much resent its anti anti-war focus). Could it be commercial? Possibly, if Dollard has a strong story arc about the Marines pictured.
